Hi, I'm still trying to create a content template but am getting a critical error - this is the same issue as before which due to my slowness was never resolved: https://toolset.com/forums/topic/create-content-template/#post-1868467
I'm just re-posting to re-open the issue

As Jamal observed in the other ticket, the options recording the details of the saved templates was wrong, the ID of the stored template was not of the template post type.
I don't know how a template might have been saved with the wrong post type, but I notice you have two plugins installed for switching post types, so I suspect it may have been accidentally updated.
In any case, I simply deleted the option, which fixes the errors. I then created a new template for Books which I was able to save without issue, so it looks like the problem is resolved.
Thanks Nigel, deleting the WPV option didn't work for me. I've made a video to demonstrate: hidden link
Please let me know when you have watched it so I can delete it.
Maybe it is something to do with the hosting environment? I hope you guys can help, thanks
I watched the video, and I see that the fix failed on your server.
And went back to your server and did some more testing.
On inspecting the database I saw that the problem actually occurs on your site because the templates, which are saved as posts, are missing a value for post_type (which should be 'view-template').
When I manually set the value, the template showed up in the list and worked as normal.
When I edited it and re-saved it, the post type was lost again.
Well, as I said before, you have two post type switcher plugins on your site, and "Custom Post Type Changer" was active.
So I disabled the plugin, reset the value for the content template post type in the database, and lo and behold, everything works as expected.
I also tested creating a template for books, no problem.
I couldn't see any settings pages for that plugin. I suggest you stop using it, and maybe use the other more mature plugin created by a WP core contributor instead.
My issue is resolved now. Thank you! 😀
